Question about 1995-1997 Chevy 1500 Truck Ignition Starter Alarm Switch

1 Answer

Shaking I Have a 97 z71 1500 4x4 and it has around 171,000 on it. Just yesterday, it had a violent shake and an overheating problem. It never overheated. I made sure. I finished driving home (never going over 45) and just parked it. I put water in the radiator and the overheating quit. Now it has a shake. I just replaced the Plugs, Wires, and Cap, but it is still shaking. Any ideas on why it's shaking???

I take it that it shakes when the engine is running but the transmission is in park. You will need to locate which cylinder is not firing. If you have a thermo thermometer, you can check the temperature at the exhaust port for each cylinder. The one or ones with the lowest temp are not firing. Pull them out and see if water in on them. If so you have a head gasket or head problem. You can also , while the engine is running, pull the plug wire out of the dist cap one at a time to see which cyl is not firing. Be careful not to get shocked by using insulated spark plug wire pliers.

Shaking!


Sounds like a cylinder misfire. Did any of the sparkplugs have water on them? If so, you may have a bad head gasget or cracked head. If they looked ok, a valve may be stuck open or push rod bent. Locate the missing cly by pulling the spark plug wire one at a time while the engine is running. Use insulated spark plug wire pliers. If the engine slows down, cyl is ok. If there is no change in rpm. cly bad. Do a compression check to see if ok.
If you have a inferred thermo thermometer, check the exhaust manifold as it comes out of the head by the plugs. If a cyl is colder than another by a couple hundred degrees, it is not firing.

93 chevy suburban shakes badly at around 50mph


50 MPH is the ideal speed for out-of-balance tires to start shaking, but when you mention tapping the brake, I wonder if you might have a badly worn or loose wheel bearing or improperly seated lug nuts.
Firestone wants to sell tires - take your car to a dealer where experience and expertise will be of more help.

Does it gallop when you are sitting idle and the RMP gauge bounce up and down between 1000 and 1500? If so, clean the throttle body and see if that solves the problem. I had a similar problem with my 03 Yukon XL (same truck) and cleaning the throttle body fixed it.

I WOULD ALMOST BET THAT THE SHAKING OF THE CAR IS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, THUS ONE PROBLEM. IT COULD BE BAD INJECTOR(S) OR JUST POOR MAINTENENCE. WITH 88K ON IT I THINK IT WOULD BE SOMETHING MINOR. HOPE THIS HELPS. LET ME KNOW. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR AN HONEST RATING AS WELL.
